Untethering text messaging from the phone w/ Google Voice

Text messaging is to phones as pillows are to bed. With Google Voice though you can text from just about any web-enabled device. I have talked about Google Voice before and it is one of my favorite web tools. The convenience of having one phone number to rule them all is wonderful. That one phone number is for voice calls and text messages. You can carry on text while sitting in front of your computer or typing on your tablet. You can ditch the cell phone but continue the conversation using a full keyboard. All of this and you can manage your text messages on the computer, through your Google Voice account.

If you have have not tried Google Voice, you can check out the website here or just watch the video Google put together to explain the service below.

On this blog, I write about and try to answer practical Oklahoma legal questions. My focus and most experience is in estate planning and business issues including Oklahoma non-compete law. I make a living as an attorney in the law firm I founded, Shawn J. Roberts, P.C. in Oklahoma City. I live in Edmond with my wife Amy and my two children, Sam (19) and David (11). We live precisely in the path of where the "wind comes sweeping down the plains."
